Just wanted to confirm how many times (NOT MANY!) Paul or Wings appeared on long running BBC music chart show TOTP since the 70's? I'm talking in the studio either playing live or miming, rather than any videos being shown or Pans People performances.
And which songs?

Wings - My Love
Seems this clip has got lost in the mists of time? There are some stills photos appear in books from time to time) Linda wearing platform shoes and has a David Bowie hairstyle Smile Maybe the BBC wiped it....
(I need confirmation it's MY LOVE though?)


Wings - Juniors Farm
Appears on The McCartney Years - seems the video again got lost for many years and then perhaps cleaned up by MPL for the DVD, it's a great performance, the only video clip of Wings performing on a TV show which exists, apart from the JPM special? Up until the DVD I'd only seen stills in various books)


Paul (at piano, no band?)- Only Love Remains
This was filmed by TOTP, the plan was to show it on a subsequent show as the record climbed the top 40. Unfortunately it stalled at number 36, so the performance was never aired (to my knowledge), not even on TOTP2 in later years. Again I've seen stills photos, one appeared in a Top Of The Pops book a few years back.

Paul and band- Once Upon A Long Ago - (Great clip, on Youtube)

Paul and band- This One - (Available on Youtube)

Paul and band - Hope Of Deliverance (Available on Youtube)

Paul and band - C'mon People (Avail on Youtube)

ANY OTHERS?

No! Had a quick look and the only other possible things I found (apart from the various Ruby Flipper and other dance accompaniments) were:

Hi Hi Hi & C Moon from 1972:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTMx5SUovlM (and this doesn't look like it was a live original)

oh, and of course Fireman Sam from 1973:

Fireman Sam haha

Can anyone confirm Hi Hi Hi and C Moon were indeed from a TOTP performance, or just promotional videos?

Actually, I'm pretty sure I saw in Club Sandwich years ago that they were both specially made promo videos.
Thanks for posting anyway. Looks like that's the full list.
Wish we could see the 'lost' clips.

Uuuh.... that would be a NO!! Laughing Wink
The song is the theme tune to a British children's show of the same name. It's a stupid video, but I thought it would be funny to include it in my list. Guess you have to be British to really get the joke though
